Yep can be ordered before mid day and at the house the same day.

Put the parts you ordered in the list and do a step by step on it.

So we can have full documenta tion on it.

I've been thinking about it especiall y since my hood on the wagon is full raise now.

Is it me or has this guy welded his top hat to the shock tower?

Yeah I'm thinking might have to possibly do this.

Could possibly do a better write up with actual tap sizes.



It looks like he extended his shock mounts for additiona l travel.

My only question is are the shocks strong enough to hold the hood up? It looks at how low of a angle they are that it could come down pretty easy
